The upcoming Batman / Superman series has the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel dealing with the last attack from The Batman Who Laughs. The sinister villain has infected six heroes with a deadly toxin that will transform them into the worse versions of themselves. We already knew that Shazam was one of the Infected and DC Comics just revealed that Supergirl, Blue Beetle, and Hawkman are also affected.

These transformations will be explored in some one-shots including The Infected: King Shazam! #1 on November 6th from writer Sina Grace and artist Joe Bennett and The Infected: Scarab #1 on November 20thth from writer Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum and artist Freddie E. Williams II. Both will feature covers by David Marquez and Dean White. The former follows a hero whose soul has been turned black. He has something to prove to the old guard. The latter is about a hero fighting the evil inside him while his friends and family prepare to pay the price...and then some.

Also coming in November are tie-in issues to The Infected, both coming on November 13th. We've got Hawkman #18 from writer Robert Venditti and artists Pat Oliffe and Tom Palmer and Supergirl #36 from writer Marc Andreyko and artists Eduardo Pansica and Julio Ferreira. Hawkman #18 features a cover by Tyler Kirkham and Supergirl #36 has one by Dan Mora.

That's not all! Batman / Superman #4 comes on November 27th from writer Joshua Williamson and artist David Marquez with an acetate cover by Emanuela Lupacchino. Tensions rise in this issue as all six of The Infected are revealed. The last two victims will have their own spotlight issues in December 2019.

I love the possibilities with this story and I cannot wait for it to begin on August 28th.
